A number of “normalized” measures ol entropy have been obtained to measure the “intrinsic” uncertainty of a probability distribution. Their graphs have been drawn and it has been shown that the normalized measures of a given probability distribution are much closer to one another than the corresponding absolute measures of entropy.
